Talking Military owners

Ok, military Sir and Ma'am let have a Military Tundra owners club . Before we get ahead of our self let have some ground rules

1. No politics discussion here.
2. No names calling regardless of branch of services.

I can't think of anything else as them budlight starting to kick in hard. Let me start by introducing myself . I am a Private First Class in the Marine Corps since Dec 1997 . Currently station at Marine Forces Reserve New Orleans Louisiana (fishing paradise and murder capital of the U.S). I own a lifted 07 Toyota Tundra CrewMax Pyrite Mica. You can see all my modifications in the signature block except the Katzkin leather seat. My future mod will be the 3" body lift, Interior wrap and TRD supercharger next year. If you are happen to be in the area feel free to hit me up for a few drinks

Hey all,

I am a prior-enlisted officer-in-training at the United States Air Force Academy. (I really hope that rule about no name calling is taken seriously )

I'm currently in Colorado, was enlisted previously at Hickam AFB, HI. Used to be 3E9, Emergency Management, loved my job, but wanted more education and opportunities in life, so I "betrayed" my enlisted side and am currently 1.5 years away from commissioning, hopefully as 14N, Intel.

TO DO: better window tint, interior lighting (?), new front bumper

Welcome aboard sir. My 81mm mortars platoon was arrested by the AF MP back in 1999 as we try to get through the gate and my Lt said Ohrah to one of the female MP so we all got pulled over as she consider that as sexual harassment hahaha. I went back to Hickam AFB in 2011 for a special mission with JPAC. So you will be working at Buckley AFB in the future?

The future is unknown right now! I won't find out my AFSC for ~9 more months. I will then find out my first base assignment a few months before graduation/commissioning.

Gotta watch out for those AF girls, bro! They're a fiery bunch!

Good job AFATundra...It's been my experience that prior enlisted officers are better leaders, I was lucky enough to work with a few, and one of them was my platoon leader at my last unit

Auburn LSD is my next big purchase!

I like the Billet UCA, BUT, I'm not convinced it's worth the extra money. Yes, it looks damn sexy. Yes, it is much lighter, even lighter than the stock one it was replacing! However, I had an issue. It's so boxy and large that my tires were rubbing on it when they should not have been. If you have a lower offset or just regular sized tires, it probably won't be a problem. Just take that into consideration before purchase!

Yes, they are 60mm. I had the stock 18s (60mm offset) with 295/70/18 and a leveling kit, and they rubbed pretty bad on the UCA only. I purchased 1.25" wheel spacers, and the rubbing went away completely. So, after the wheel spacers, my wheels were around 30-35mm offset (can't remember exactly).

Honestly, I feel like you would rub with those wheels and the billet UCA. No way of really telling before purchase though. Sorry I don't have any more info for you.

No problem bud. I have a set of 1.5" spacers ready for that situation.

I don't think you'll have an issue Steve. Your CST spindles already pushing your wheels out 1-1.25" away from your UCA already.

If you put those 1.5" spacers on up front, you are gonna hit everything with those tires

NO, I mean you are going to bind up with your bodymount and front bumper if you put a 1.5" spacer on your front wheels. You gonna need some serious surgery for that.

On a side nope; a buddy of mine from Texas want to trade his RW wheels for my BBS wheels. He has a brand new Toyo ATII 35" but I am still undecided.
